While we don’t offer finance directly through MITS Alloy, we have found a fantastic Australian company Explore Financial who have worked with previous customers to secure finance for tray and canopy packages, as well as full vehicle builds. You can enquire about your finance eligibility at this link.

Our EVO2 trays have a starting weight of 200kg. It is important to remember this weight includes fitting kits, and all standard inclusions like toolboxes, rear under tray drawer etc.

A GVM upgrade is always a good option if you are planning to do big trips with a big load. At a minimum, we recommend a spring upgrade of 400kg. There are several local suppliers in the Newcastle area we can put you in contact with.

We have a range of heavy-duty aluminium trays developed for most major vehicle brands. Our trays are stylish, functional and well equipped for handling the harsh Australian environment. Our dimensions are set to accommodate our range of canopies. Please contact us if you have a larger American vehicle for exact sizing.

All standard dual cab, space cab and single cab vehicles excluding the Toyota Landcruiser 79, 200 Series and American vehicles are 850mm from tray height. This usually sits the headboard at 130mm above roof height. Toyota Landcruisers and other makes are 960mm from the tray floor.

We offer a 65mm x 65mm x 5mm mandrel bent square tube headboard. We do not offer modifications to this as it has been tried and tested as the most suitable for our tray designs and production capabilities.

Please refer to the trays page on our website for all tray dimensions.

Yes! Unfortunately, we do not have storage space for removed tubs or trays. Therefore, they must be removed from the premises immediately.


(While care is taken to remove these, we do not take responsibility if there is damage during the process)

The spare tyre will remain in the original location for all vehicles except the Toyota Landcruiser, where it is mounted to the back of the headboard inside the tray.

We have fuel filler brackets for original positioning for all vehicles and fuel filler relocation kits for the Toyota Landcruiser 79 Series.

Yes! We offer powder coating on our tray and canopy packages through our in-house facility. We use Oxytech for our powder and their range can be found over at their website here.

No. We offer an aluminium tray that is a steel equivalent in strength and durability with half the weight. 

No, none of our trays have lips. We have found added strength in our design without the lips and this keeps the tray surface flush for easy mounting of canopies and loading of larger loads and pallets.

Yes, we offer a matching ladder rack that follows the headboard profile. It is completely removable when not in use as we bolt them to the tray.

Strong is the only way we build our canopies here at MITS Alloy. With a full internal frame, it can be lifted off your tray with all your gear still inside and a roof that will take the weight of any tent on the market.

Please call us to discuss your plans for the roof of the canopy as we can make recommendations based on your requirements.

Yes. There are three 12V packages from both Enerdrive and Redarc – more info here.

Give us a call to discuss which one is right for you.

Yes, we can option a dog box with a ventilated door on the right hand side of the canopy.

We bolt our canopies to our trays through our unique rubber mounts. We do this for peace of mind. The bolts can be removed easily.

(Please note we don’t offer a clamping system and will not give warranty on canopies that have been fitted with one.)
